obama will suggest today it has nothing to do with taking second amendment rights away. >> the people also want the economy to be taken care of first, spending to be taken care of first before you get to these issues. the devil is in the details here. when you talk about an assault weapons ban, what does that mean? when you're talking about magazine clip restrictions, does that mean if you go from ten bullets to seven bullets, will somebody go out and buy two, three guns to replace the problem? they have to look at the issue here. not only that, we've been -- there's a focus now on mental health. and what does that mean? does that mean health privacy right also come into play here as well? >> jason? >> the american public expects the president to be able to do two jobs at once. he can pat his head and rub his tummy. he can work on the economy and do something about gun violence. i don't think americans wanted to sit by. they want background checks. they want their children to be safe and keep their gun rights, too. all of that can be done with commonsense proposals, making sure people
put him back in competition right around the time he's about 49 or 50 years old. >> all right, neal karlinsky reporting in again tonight. thank you so much. >>> and tomorrow, president obama will announce his action plan against gun violence in america. but today, new york governor andrew cuomo signed a law that is the toughest gun law in the nation right now and tried to tackle a very big question. how do you keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill? abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas tells us about the controversial idea. >> reporter: we've all seen the faces. young men accused of horrific mass shootings, looking unstable, believed to be mentally ill. they were ticking time bombs who sometimes had encounters with mental health professionals. could they have been stopped? today, new york state officials are leading the way, passing a new law they hope will block violent acts by the mentally ill. >> we must stop the madness and >> reporter: the new law would require mental health professionals to report to state officials any patient they deem to be a "significan
finish. all right. even after obama convincingly won re-election advocates of various counter factual theories about the president he's a foreigner, marxist muslim say they're sticking it to their fight. this inauguration is a mistake and those who permit it to happen will have to live with their own consequences said the aforementioned eldon belle. >> what does that mean? >> stephanie: don't know. >> eldon belle. >> stephanie: this is a man very deep into an ideology that is not american says the rev lend clenard childress. i told my congregation just strap yourselves down. it will be nasty because that's what jesus would want you to do. rhetoric since the election has gotten worse. >> sounds like legitimate rape. >> stephanie: said one web site owner. i've seen more openly racist remarks since the election. we have to think about impeachment for abusing executive power said cliff kincaid who runs america's survival of groups threatened by socialism and the u.n. and liberal culture. >> a combination of cliff huxtable and kincaid. >> and he's a web ring web master. i haven't seen thos
of all this is the legislation that obama is proposing and asking congress to act. you have republicans and a number of pro gun democrats including the senate majority leader harry reid who does not seem enthusiastic at the start of the debate right now. realistically, what do you think the most is that we can get out of this in terms of gun control laws? >> not that much. the orders are incremental and they will make some difference. they are not going to solve the problem as it is diagnosed. i don't see action in the congress. i wouldn't be surprised about a fig leaf measure and congress wants to show they did something that is toothless. i think that might be a realistic option. i don't think you will see very much in the way of the package the president proposed unless public opinion does seem to be moving a little bit. after the other big shootings, you don't see sentiment in favor of gun control. if the president wants to keep driving this and followed through more than i and other people predicted he would, keep the public pressure off now and mayor bloomberg is determined to do

". here is another tip i have for the gop. president obama will compromise. so you can raise the debt ceiling and cut spending and you can get all that done if you play your cards right. but what is the conservative advice for the republican party for the long run? what does the gop need to do to change it's message? and wheel ask pennsylvania governor comcore bet, we'll find out why people from virginia to maryland to new jersey are moving to his state and what will lance armstrong's doping admissions cost him. the lawsuits are already piling up. and possible criminal prosecution. but here is another question. could armstrong go to jail? the kudlow report begins right now. >> here is my quick take on his debt ceiling stand off. do not mess with the credit rating with the united states of america. however, you can race the debt ceiling and cut spending at the same time. on top of that, you kcan fix th $2 trillion situation. that is my take. charlie wrangle from new york and i begin with you. i don't understand why that can't be done. you can get that done. you are one of my buddies, b
measures they say will violate the constitutional right to bear arms. the white house says that president obama will be joined by children who sent letters expressing their concern about gun crimes when he announces proposals today to reduce gun violence. that announcement is expected at 8:45 a.m.. >> in san francisco, two pieces of gun control legislation more introduced to the board of supervisors. the first, bands of the possession of military-style ammunition, such as hollow- point bullets. the sale of those bullets is already legal. this action would make owning them a crime, as well. the second, requires police notification, when someone in san francisco buys 500 rounds of ammunition or more. this includes online purchases. it will take several steps to make these 2 changes into law. >> san jose police are investigating an attempted kidnapping of a 2 year-old girl. it happened around 5:30 p.m. last night in the 200 block of and david accords. that is when the girl's mother says, that her daughter was planned in the front yard when a strange man walked up. the mother was uncomfortabl
is the assistant attorney general of the civil rights division in washington, dc, he was nominated for that position by president obama and sworn in in october of 2009 and we are all the lucky -- we are all very lucky that that happened in october of 2009. tom has spent his entire career in public service and on protecting the civil rights of our most vulnerable people. tom actually joined the civil rights division as a young lawyer and while he was there he prosecuted some of the most significant cases in the country. lawyers in the civil rights division get fanned out to places in the country to handle cases in mississippi and alabama and california and all over and tom was one of those people. he was sent to texas to handle a very significant hate crime case when he was a young lawyer that involved a gang of white supremacists that went on a killing spree and ended up shooting 3 people and killing one when he was a young lawyer working in the civil rights division. he later served as a top deputy for attorney general janet reno, he was special counsel to ted kennedy and ser
just an election, right? if the nra's got a list, then obama for america has a bigger list. and it is time to get activated again. lots of people on that list told us for four years when for the last four years that they wanted to be asked to do something besides just participate in an election, and i would turn them loose on a battle that's so important for our kids. the presidents' got to do this each and every day. today's going to be a go ahead good event. today will be an important be n beginning to this, but it is by no means anything close to what has to happen. i was up on capitol hill in 1994 as i literally began working in february 1994. i only saw the very end of the crime bill. i didn't see the fact that the assault weapons ban had been introduced five years earlier. so this is going to take a concerted effort by the president, by the vice president, by the white house, one on one on the phone, out in big settings throughout the country, and turning loose his campaign apparatus for something bigger than just an election. >> well, you mentioned the campaign appa
